  • Mason Smith, sales/customer service, Empire Bolt & Screw, Spokane WA
  • John St. Onge, incoming inspector, Specialty Bolt & Screw, Agawam MA
  • Carola Zabawa, sales and marketing support, Fuller Metric Parts, Surrey BC

Applicants were evaluated based on the recommendation from their employer, personal achievements, work experience, and an essay. Identifying information was redacted, so that the team evaluating the applications did not know the names or employers of those applying.
